Whipped Kailh Creams
We are bringing back a limited amount of Whipped Creams. Shipping now.
The original broken-in Cream switch! RNDKBD Whipped Creams are Kailh Cream switches that have been mechanically broken in for 1.2 million actuations. The POM sliding on the POM simulates years of use, creating a smoother feel just like the vintage switches we all desire - without the dust, desoldering, ultrasonicing, spring swapping, and thrift shopping. This is especially prominent with the all POM Cream switch, as the material is self lubricating and really benefits from a break in period before lubing.
Note that other stores may sell broken in Kailh Creams as "Whipped Creams". They have no affiliation with RNDKBD and are simply piggy-backing on the name.
NOTE: Kailh switch pins are a little thicker, and do not play nicely with Mill-Max sockets. It is not recommended to use the two together, and returns for ruined switches from using Mill-Max with these are not accepted.
Sold in packs of 10, minimum order is 30 switches (3 packs of 10). Orders with less than this will be cancelled according to the return policy.
205g0 or bust. These linears benefit from a nice thick lube. Give the whole stem a nice light coat, and give the bottom housing sliders a medium coating. I also recommend a spring swap and oiling, as the stock springs are rather heavy, crunchy and overall not so good.
Films are typically not needed for Kailh Creams.
My daily driver PLA75 build uses 205g0 lubed Whipped Creams with 60g Slow I springs.
I custom designed the machinery for this, and as a mechanical engineer you have my word that these switches are being broken in on precision machines, and not some silly "rock taped to a fan" device. This helps keep the stresses on the leaves to a minimum, as the pressing is no harsher than your fingers. The machine also introduces extremely slight oblique presses, as we never have perfectly centered and straight down presses when we type. This helps to wear the switches evenly and effectively.
Sales on worked in switches are final, as this is a product with a service rendered upon it.
